Waldorf Salad has been served on special occasions in my parents’ home for as long as I can remember. The original was created in 1893 by Oscar Tschirky at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. His creation consisted only of apples, celery, and mayonnaise. The nuts were added later and have since become considered a standard ingredient.
